Geography

Decies-within-Drum is located in the southwest of County Waterford, east of the Munster Blackwater and including the coast between Youghal and Dungarvan harbours.[3]

History

Déisi Muman were an ancient Gaelic Irish tribe that occupied this territory; their name means "Vassals of Mumu." and they are believed by some historians to have Gaulish origin.[4]

Decies-within-Drum was anciently the territory of the Ó Broic, a surname literally meaning "descendant of badger", perhaps a totemic animal. They claimed descent from the Fir Bolg.[5]

The Ó Broic were later driven out by the Eóganachta of Desmond. After the Munster Plantation it came to the La Poer (Power) family.[6] The Walsh/Welsh family were also big landowners.[7]

The origin Decies barony was divided into two halves some time between 1654 and 1774.
